The Economics of Killing: How the West Fuels War and Poverty in the Developing World
We live in a rich world and yet increasingly people are getting caught in the poverty trap and facing real hardship and pain. Vijay Mehta's excellent book sets out the problems and solutions, and challenges us all to create the spiritual and political will to implement policies which will bring about real change and give hope to humanity. (Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 1976. Founder, Peace People, Belfast, Northern Ireland )The Economics of Killing brilliantly links the deepening economic crisis facing the West with the dynamics of militarism that is wreaking havoc on the planet. Everyone who cares about the future must read this groundbreaking book. (Richard Falk, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights for the Palestinian Territories, Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University, USA )Vijay Mehta’s book shines a timely light on the role that Western Governments play in perpetuating conflict around the world. It is particularly welcome in that it does not just identify and detail the problem – it puts forward an alternative, and one which anyone genuinely committed to peace, justice and equality cannot afford to ignore. (Caroline Lucas, MP and Leader, Green Party, UK )It is about time someone exposed the nefarious activities of the military-industrial complex that is destroying the foundations of civilized human existence. It has made killing a proifitable industry. This book is a must read for all peace-seekers. (Arun Gandhi, Grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, President, Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute, Rochester, NY, USA )The book, The Economics of Killing: How the West Fuels War and Poverty in the Developing World by Vijay Mehta depicts ways in which the western powers can restructure their economies away from the reliance on the military industrial complex towards making the 21st century an era of soft power for a more peaceful and sustainable future. (Deepak Chopra, Best-selling Author, “Peace is the Way”. California, USA )The Charter of the United Nations starts in this way: “We, the Peoples… have resolved to save the succeeding generations from the scourge of war”… But instead of better sharing and building peace through social justice and economy guided by the “democratic principles” –so well enshrined in the UNESCO’s Constitution- and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the sinister proverb “if you wish peace prepare war” has been secularly applied by male rulers. And plutocratic (G7, G8 ) groups have taken over the functions of the United Nations, and have placed the market in the very core of the world governance… The result is a profound financial crisis that hides the most urgent planetary challenges as access to food and health of all human beings, the environmental progressive degradation; the lack of horizons of the humanity worldwide. The net balance is $4 billion per day in military expenditures while 70,000 persons die of hunger… The book of Vijay Mehta is extremely timely and provides –what is extremely important and must be underlined- not only excellent diagnosis but also appropriate treatments. And the first is to reduce the power of the military industrial complex. (Federico Mayor Zaragoza, Former Director-General UNESCO, President, Foundation Culture of Peace, Madrid, Spain )Congratulations to Vijay Mehta on having grappled with this complex and too often sinister issue. The latest technology, with the clinically remote killing process of drones and the like, makes it all the more urgent and compelling. We are all involved. The subsidies by taxpayers to the arms industry are immense. Were that industry exposed to the full rigours of the market economy, it would be in deep trouble. It is a challenge to us all. Vijay Mehta helps us to face up to it. (Lord Frank Judd, Minister for Overseas Development (1976-1977), Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (1977-1979), Director of Oxfam (1985-91) London, UK )This important book identifies the real crisis ahead for the world which is not narrowly environmental but the fact that with rising population we will not have enough food or oil or water to survive. That is the real reason that this book, pointing to the waste in military expenditure, offers the real alternative to starvation, which is cooperation to meet our needs. (Tony Benn, former MP and Cabinet Minister, President, Stop the War Coalition, London, UK )The book exposes the reader to the vicious Northern military-industrial complex, and roles of the media and energy sectors, plus the corrupting role of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council in the profits of endless poverty. As power is shifting to the new emerging powers of the South, this book provides hope that the Northern centuries-old model of brutal human exploitation and blatant use of warfare will be uprooted and changed to support socio economic well being, equal opportunity and sustainable prosperity. (Denis Halliday, UN Assistant Secretary General (1994-1998) and Former Coordinator of the UN Humanitarian Program in Iraq )In his book, ''The Economics of Killing: How the West Fuels War and Poverty in the Developing World” Vijay Mehta lifts the curtain on a truth which many would prefer concealed. If we were to become instruments of peace instead of war and redirect some of the global trillion and a half dollars spent annually on war and weapons to real human needs there would be no need to create Millennium Development Goals. All those supporting humanitarian NGOs should read Mehta’s book and act on it. (Bruce Kent, Vice President, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), Movement for the Abolition of War. London, UK )
